The back seat is used to remain within cg limits.

The J3 was used to train huge numbers of civilian pilots in the past and in some cases you still see it used for primary and tail wheel training today.

It is a wonderful airplane to fly and it is great for revealing weaknesses in your stick and rudder skills.
